The Distribution of Pastures

The people of Matsouki were supplied with grasslands. These were identified as communal or private. The communal grasslands were located on sites such as Baldika, Skala and Chelimodi. All the residents had rights to the grasslands. A community representative would notify them of their rights 10 days earlier. On the morning of the announcement the residents gathered in the meadow and waited for a signal from the community president or the rural constable. The place was secured and personal items were left aside. The residents would cut around a strip of grass and then they’d cut the remainder at their convenience. After they’d cut the grass the communal animals were free to graze in the communal grasslands which they’d call ζευγαρολίβαδα (zevgarolivada). Now because there wasn’t enough grass in the winter time the farmers would deliberately leave a part of the grassland uncultivated so that there’d be enough grass over the winter months. They’d delineate the uncultivated plot with stones. As they placed one stone on top of the other they’d imitate the so-called cuckoos.
